Ramadan is Coming

2021.03.24. ラマダンにむけて

Our Dear Friends,

As you know, The Holy month of Ramadan is a very abundant month that is full of divine wisdom, Mercy, and Forgiveness. We are on the eve of these blessed days.
InshaAllah, we will be entering the Holy month of Ramadan in the upcoming days. From now on, we should start to prepare ourselves for these blessed days.

How should we prepare for the month of Ramadan?
What are the most virtuous deeds to be done for this precious month?

1. Sincere repentance
One must repent all the time sincerely. However, as a believer, it is more appropriate to hurry to repent for sins against Allah and infringement of the rights of others. When the Holy month of Ramadan starts, hearts and souls will be filled with peace. Therefore, one could engage in righteous deeds and worship during Ramadan.
Allah says;

Turn to Allah in repentance altogether, O believers, so that you may be successful. (Surah an-Nur 31)

The Messenger of Allah, The Noble Prophet Muhammad (saw), peace and blessings be upon him, said,

O, people! Seek repentance from Allah. I seek repentance from Him a hundred times a day. (Hadith Sahih Muslim no:2702)

2. Dua
A Muslim should pray to Allah for the month of Ramadan for good in his religion and body. Moreover, one should pray for more obedience to Allah and acceptance of our deeds.

3. Being happy and satisfied with the arrival of this great month
Reaching the month of Ramadan is one of the great blessings of Allah on His Muslim believers. Ramadan is the season of goodness and blessings. The gates of heaven are opened while the gates of hell are closed. Ramadan is the month of the Qur’an, the month in which truth and falsehood are distinguished in our religion.
